Times Have Changed

TIL: An Italian artist wanted to hitch-hike to the Middle East to show that she could put her trust in the kindness of local people. She was found murdered in Turkey.

His arrival was foretold in ancient murals.


Yeah NASA!


NASA wants to put a supersonic passenger jet back in the sky that promises to a soft thump or supersonic heartbeat as the agency called it - rather than the disruptive boom currently associated with such high-speed flight. 


The 'low-boom' aircraft known as Quiet Supersonic Technology (QueSST) will be built by a team led by Lockheed Martin Aeronautics. 

It will cost $20 million to develop baseline aircraft requirements and a preliminary aircraft design.

Risen is third at the boxoffice!

The good news is truly good news for Hollywood. 


Risen, a mainstream movie about the resurrection of Christ, came in third at the box office its first weekend in theaters.

The $20-million budget movie made $11 million last weekend.

Not a bad start.

Show some support and go see it.

You will be impacted, but not in the way that you would think you would.

This movie comes from an entirely unexpected angle.

I experienced the depth of what one would experience from an outsiders view.

I won't go into detail least I spoil the movie for you.

Needless to say this movie put flesh and blood on the Gospel account in a magnificent reality.




Yes, I am going to go see it again!

Our cells are powered by Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and according to a new study, they could be a power source for the next generation of biological supercomputers capable of processing information very quickly and accurately using parallel networks in the same way that massive electronic super computers do.


 Published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), the paper describes a model of biological computer that is effectively a very complex network in a very small area, and is based on a combination of geometrical modeling and engineering know-how (on the nano scale). 

Researchers involved with the study claim that it is the first step in showing that this kind of biological supercomputer can actually work. 

The Pentagon is attempting what was, until recently, an impossible technological feat -- developing a high-bandwidth neural interface that would allow people to beam data from their minds to external devices and back.

That's right -- a brain modem. 


One that could allow a soldier to, for example, control a drone with his mind. 

On Feb. 8, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) -- the US military's fringe-science wing -- announced the first successful tests, on animal subjects, of a tiny sensor that travels through blood vessels, lodges in the brain and records neural activity

The so-called "stentrode," a combination stent and electrode, is the size of a paperclip and flexible. 

The tiny, injectable machine -- the invention of neurologist Tom Oxley and his team at the University of Melbourne in Australia -- could help researchers solve one of the most vexing problems with the brain modem: how to insert a transmitter into the brain without also drilling a hole in the user's head, a risky procedure under any circumstances.

 John McAfee, American computer programmer and contributing editor of Business Insider, explains how the NSA's back door has given every U.S. secret to its enemies


He begins by mentioning the importance of software, specifically meta- software, which contains a high level set of principles designed to help a nation survive in a cyberwar.

Such software must not contain any back doors under any circumstances, otherwise it can and may very likely allow perceived enemies of the U.S. to have access to top-secret information.

For example, the Chinese used the NSA's back door to hack the Defense Department last year and steal 5.6 million fingerprints of critical personnel.

 "Whatever gains the NSA has made through the use of their back door, it cannot possibly counterbalance the harm done to our nation by everyone else's use of that same back door."

McAfee believes the U.S. has failed to grasp the subtle implications of technology and, as a result, is 20 years behind the Chinese, and by association, the Russians as well.

 Disney is now asking its employees to chip in to promote the company's copyright agenda via the company's political action committee, DisneyPAC. 


CEO Bob Iger has sent a letter to the company's employees lauding the company's success with the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement and the recent Supreme Court decision regarding the video service Aereo -- an Internet service claiming the right to retransmit [Disney's] broadcast signals without paying copyright or retransmission consent fees.

 Iger also expresses the company's hope that DisneyPAC will be able to influence Congress in regards to lowering corporate tax rates. Not surprisingly, the company refuses to comment on the initiative.

Disney Jobs Not for Americans.

“I just couldn’t believe they could fly people in to sit at our desks and take over our jobs exactly,” said one former worker, an American in his 40s who remains unemployed since his last day at Disney on Jan. 30. “It was so humiliating to train somebody else to take over your job. I still can’t grasp it.”

Risen (In Theaters Now) A Must See For Christians

 I just finished watching the Pre-Easter Movie release of Risen.


I give it the full five stars.

 Witness the greatest event in human history through the eyes of a non-believer.

As an old Christian I have seen em all a time or two when it comes to Christian themed movies.

So I have a good perspective of the differing angle points these movies can take for the most part.

As I watched the opening scene I found myself trying hard to anticipate which route this particular iteration was going to take.

I liked the Roman tribune Clavius immediately, he was a believable no nonsense manly looking actor.

"Roman military tribune Clavius (Joseph Fiennes) remains set in his ways after serving 25 years in the army.

He arrives at a crossroad when he's tasked to investigate the mystery of what happened to Jesus (Cliff Curtis) following the Crucifixion.

 Accompanied by trusted aide Lucius (Tom Felton), his quest to disprove rumors of a risen Messiah makes him question his own beliefs and spirituality.

 As his journey takes him to places never dreamed of, Clavius discovers the truth that he's been seeking." (Rotten Tomatoes)

Several times during the movie the Holy Spirit manifested His presence in the theater.

At one point people were wiping tears.

At the end of the movie the audience seemed pinned to their seats as a black screen with white credits rolled on the screen.

There was nothing on the screen but the credits and people were still not leaving.

My wife found that odd, until I told her it was because of the Holy Spirit being present ministering.

I highly would recommend this film if you haven't seen it yet.

Take an unsaved friend with you.

It posses a great opportunity to share the Gospel message.

A Sobering Reality

 Who really knows what is being sprayed over everyone?


What if it were biological?

What would happen if there really was an epidemic?

This scenario is all too real, see for yourself HERE.


Without The Constitution We Have No "America."


Apple's lawyer, and true American,Ted Olson, explained in an interview with CNN that what the government is asking Apple to do is "limitless." 


 Olson explained that if the tool that the government wants is created, any judge anywhere could essentially order to list to any customer's conversation, track location, and much more.

The lawyer likened it to an Orwellian "big brother" type society.

When pressed about how Apple could potentially help fight terrorism by creating a tool to access locked devices, Olson explained that while Apple will help the government defeat terrorism in every way that it can, it can't be done by breaking the Constitution.

Hearing God Today?

In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths (Proverbs 3:6).

Walk The Path Of God

This is what people say.

"God, He's the God of love. He is for us
and loves us. Why is He allowing this kind of
hardship to befall us? Why is God allowing
me to go through this kind of tribulation if
He exists? Where is God? I lived so honestly,
but why do I have to go through this?"

If we objectively think about this, we see
that people think that they are walking
God's path because they read the Bible and
give offering, regardless of the fact that
they live following their own thoughts
without knowing the precise will of God.

How could that path be the same as God's
when they do not have ears to hear the
voice of God and do not know the deep
heart of God? That is why God leads us.
What happens when a fish is caught in a
net while it is swimming in the sea? It becomes
entangled. "What did I just run
into?" It turns around and swims and it is
okay.
.
Then again while it is swimming
around, it runs into something. Then the
space becomes smaller and smaller, and
eventually it is captured. God puts us into
His net and leads us into His world. That is
why we run into things as we go on to do
something. When we turn around from the
frustration, it seems for a little while that
things are okay, but we crash into something
again.

It is because we are in God's
net. Our lives become much better when
we fully understand this.

Spiritual life is believing in
God. To have faith, we have to first realize
that our methods are wrong.

When you become
freed from your ways, you are able to
have the faith to believe in God. Right then
God works with power inside of us.

Regardless
of how your thoughts have been until
now, empty all of those thoughts and listen 
to the Word God speaks to you. Incline your
ears to the voice of God. If you hear the
voice of God, it is no longer the path you
go. It is the path God takes.

Through hearing
the voice of God, Noah started to build
the ark, Abraham gained a son, and Moses
went before Pharaoh. They were not paths
of their own, but paths God showed them. I
hope that you will not take your own paths,
but walk the path of God.

California Weather Control Continues And No One Seems To Care, Certainly Not Governor Jerry Brown

Sat. Feb 27, 2016


High pressure has been parked off the California coast for the 10th straight day which continues to block all weather systems from delivering rain into Southern California! 


Aerosol 'chemtrails' were also sprayed in the skies over the region all day to maintain low atmospheric humidity and to create the inversion layer which stops atmospheric lift / convection necessary for precipitation.

 There are actually seven low pressure centers ID'd on the Surface Analysis map - one of which is a rapidly developing hurricane-force system; there are two other developing storms and two Gales among all of the weather, yet none of this weather will deliver any rain to Southern California because of high pressure installed into place to block all of this winter weather 10 days ago. 

Question to the meteorologists and scientists:

 Where is the El Nino pattern we've all been hearing about for the last two years?

Life Of Christ

Franco Zeffirelli directed this incredible account of Jesus of Nazareth, an NBC Easter special, on 3 April 1977.

Many people gathered around their TV's for this mini series that drew unprecedented numbers of viewers.  

This is my personal favorite.

TV Guide called Jesus of Nazareth "the best mini-series of all time" and "unparalleled television" Here is the miniseries in it's entirety as one uninterrupted movie.

The Good News Of Luke

The Good News Of John

The Anointing Of The Lord And The Fullness Of The Holy Spirit Releases The Word Of God!

Expand! Release! Acts.

Lonnie Frisbee Used The Word And Relied Upon The Holy Spirit
And Impacted An Entire Generation

 Some churches only teach the Bible, lifting it up as the primary thing we ought to do while eliminating prophecy as something that is unnecessary. 


When in fact the two go hand in hand.

Prophecy flows from the seeds of the Bible, the Word of God.

We are not to just sit and learn the Bible year after year, taking it all in and not letting it flow prophetically out to others.

I had the honor of being around Greg Laurie when we were both first born again.

He would be constantly getting revelation from the Word of God by the Holy Spirit.

As we were the ones around him at the time we got front row seats to him flowing out to us the things that he was learning from the Holy Spirit.

He could not contain it all to himself, he just had to share it with others.

Any one who goes to hear this man of God gets the Word from him still to this day; only he has more to give than he did way back so long ago when we were all young men.

All of us are to be giving out, flowing out what God flows into us; expanding the Word of God through others around us.

Today's lesson addresses these things.

 ***

  In a recent discussion of the Scriptures, we were led to agree that the principle purpose for the book of Acts seems to be the description of the anointing of the Lord and the fullness of the Spirit that rested upon the early believers.


Why should such a discussion be important to any of us?

Many of us have been too narrow in our understanding of this dynamic book.

A Pentecostal influence has led us to see Acts as a book that records the fact that the Spirit of the Lord fell and the believers spoke in tongues.

We forget that this experience is not what the book of Acts is all about.


  The book of Acts is about people who received the Holy Spirit, and in some cases they even spoke with tongues.

But as we go deeper into the book of Acts, we find stories such as the one recorded about the Church at Ephesus ( Acts 19).

Paul found some disciples there, and he laid his hands upon them.

They received the Holy Spirit, and they spake with tongues and prophesied; and almost immediately there was a release that came from Ephesus to speak the Word of the Lord.


These people, filled with the Holy Spirit, began to speak the Word of the Lord.


Within two years everyone in Asia ( that means Asia Minor or what we call Turkey ) had heard the Word of the Lord.

Every single person had heard the Word of God.

This phenomenal evangelistic campaign started with twelve people being filled with the Holy Spirit, and from the humble beginning the Word began sounding out.

The day they received the Spirit they spoke with tongues and prophesied, and the prophetic flow began like a great magnificent tide of the Word of God that kept rising and overcoming everything else.

People with books of magic worth fortunes brought them to be burned.

The Word of God grew mightily and prevailed ( Acts 19:1-20 ).

All without cellphones or the internet!

How many Christian people do we see today looking for a deeper experience or some secret to obtain power or personal increase in ministry everywhere but in the Word of God?

The flesh guiding the flesh, leading to soulishness and foolishness.

  The Book of Acts is about people being filled with the Spirit of the Lord.


But even beyond that, it is about the Word growing and prevailing over everything else.

Its pages are filled with accounts of men who were filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of the Lord until that Word became like a rising tide.


  Some have contended that we finally have come to the place where we do not need the Scriptures anymore.

They say we do not need the Scriptures because we have prophecy.

That is not true.

Some feel they could live on the word that a mature man of God brings, but such a word is only the fruit of the Scripture itself.

Some of these men started hiding the Word in their hearts when they were just learning to read.

They read and studied the Holy Scriptures.

The Scriptures were written upon their hearts, etched upon them with fire.

Later the Holy Spirit began to bring it to mind, and the prophetic flow began to come.

But you cannot divide that word and say, "Here is prophecy, and here is the Word."

The prophecy in a man is a result of the Word; it is a result of the Scriptures.

You can read the Scriptures and you can hear the Word with your spiritual ear, or you can hear the Word in its fruitfulness coming forth from another vessel; nevertheless, it is all the same Word.


  Some say that they want to just hold to the Scriptures.

They end up putting it on a shelve like a package of seeds.

What will it grow?

What will seeds grow in a package?

Not one thing.

That is what the Bible is: a package of seeds.

You must take it, and you must plant it in your heart, and you must water it!

Let the Holy Spirit breathe on it; and after awhile, it begins to grow; it begins to spring forth.

You may say, "I'll stick to the Bible, and you can have the prophecy."

However, the prophecy is nothing more than the germinated Word.

It is germinated; it is growing; it is coming to fulfillment.



  When we talk about the Word, when we talk about how the Scriptures came forth, and when we talk about how the disciples began to speak the Word of the Lord in the New Testament, we realize that God wants to do the same thing today.



He would like to set this whole move of His Spirit on fire.

But most of God's people are not deep enough into what God does in His Word to produce that fire.


  Since the beginning of the restoration of the New Testament Church until this time, I do not believe that the people of God have had experiences as rich as they are now receiving.

Frankly, I believe that the experiences began at a shallow level.

God intended for them, as the restoration moved along, to become deeper and deeper.

I remember when people would say, "Praise God, we now are filled with the Holy Ghost and fire."

There was no fire, and there was not much of the Holy Ghost, either.

But they did have an experience about which they said, "We talk in tongues as the Christians did in the book of Acts."

Yet they did not move in what those early disciples moved in as recorded in the book of Acts.

What they should have said was that their experience was the beginning of a restoration of the Acts experience.

That would have been humility which God would have honored.


  In the early days of this present move of God's Spirit, hands were laid on people; the elders prophesied over them; and years and years passed before these prophesies began to be fulfilled.

Now people receive a Word from God and immediately begin to move in it.

The effectiveness of impartation has improved vastly from the early days.

People can begin a walk with God now and have a clearer vision of what restoration is all about then many people had after ten years of walking in the early days of this restoration.

Why?

Because there is depth that has been established.

This leads us to certain conclusion.

Even with the most ardent determination of prophesying, even with the most intense proclaiming of the Word of the Lord, I fear that some have not had the depth of experience that brings forth the creative, forceful Word we are expecting and must have.

There is a way by which the present level of experiences can become deeper, and it is that depth that actually will give reality to our walk with God.


  If experiences tend to become deeper as time goes on, then I suggest that you go back and strengthen your salvation experience and your experience in repenting.

I suggest that you seek God and get a little deeper experience of deliverance in your life.

I suggest that you get a little more release from the flesh.

To put it bluntly, it is one thing to be saved; and it is another thing to be saved to the uttermost
 ( Hebrews 7:25 ).

Would you like to be saved to the uttermost?

That is a lot of saving.

If I asked you if you were saved, you would say, "Yes."

But are you saved to the uttermost?

Have you received the Holy Spirit?

Are you really filled with the Holy Spirit?

Do you have a double portion of the Holy Spirit?

How deep an experience are you going to have?


  There is nothing that you receive from God that is not expandable.

God does not give you anything that will not grow with your life.

Your dedication must grow.

Your revelations must grow.

You must grow!

Grow.

God intends for the revelations and the experiences to expand and grow deeper as time goes on.

Whenever there is a waning of your experiences, a diminishing, it is a very unhealthy sign.

It is a sign that death is working in you- the wrong kind of death.

Away with the human arrogance that says, "Praise the Lord, five years ago the Lord met me," or "Two years ago He met me.

I had a real experience.

Someone laid hands on me and prophesied over me."

Perhaps he has a little more to give now than he did then.


  Suppose the government decides to help everyone who is out of work by giving each a hundred dollars.

Everyone who is unemployed goes out and gets a hundred dollars.

Later, a new law is passed: the government decides to give five hundred dollars to everyone who is unemployed.

Will a man say, "I don't qualify, I already have my hundred dollars"?

No, he will yell, "I want four hundred more dollars.

If you're going to give five hundred dollars away, I only have received a hundred; and I want four hundred more."

In the same way, if God restored to you something that was one fifth of what it could be now, you should come back and say, "I want a new deal on this.

 I want You to give me something more.

You were passing out portions, but now You are giving out double portions, so I want a double portion.

  I believe God is making available a deeper experience, a deeper appropriation than we have had thus far in the restoration of the New Testament Church.


We are entering into a new phase; and I am in favor of us all standing in line, saying, "Lord, we are ready for a double portion.

We are ready for a little deeper experience than we have had, a little deeper deliverance than we have had, a little better healing than we have had.

We are ready for an experience in the Holy Spirit where we will be overflowing constantly."


  This desire for deeper experiences is leading us to a true restoration of the book of Acts' experience.

In the book of Acts it says that the disciples were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they all spake the Word of God with boldness ( Acts 4:31 ).

How would you like to speak the Word of God with boldness?

How would you like to have a new experience of being filled with the Holy Spirit until you begin speaking the Word of the Lord with boldness?

It is up to you.

You must turn that hunger loose.

The more you are filled with the Spirit, the deeper the Word will be that flows forth from you.

You cannot move in something that you do not have.

If you speak the Word with limited effectiveness ( it does not matter how much you stomp and yell ), you need to go a little further and cry out to God for a deeper faith and a greater anointing.


  When there has been a meeting of God's people which has been given to exhortation and prophecy, I believe we should look for the Words that have been spoken to happen.

If prophecies come releasing the finances, we should have those finances.

If we prophesy a blessing on a missionary project, there should be a blessing on that project.

When God's people prophesy over some situation, they should expect that there will be a change.

There must be this ardent determined, forceful explosion of faith.

It is time for us to soberly analyze how much we have from God and get a little more.

We must constantly reach into a greater anointing of the Holy Spirit and say, "This is the way it's going to be; there is going to be more of God in my life."


  If you go through the book of Acts, using Young's Concordance, and trace the two words, "rhema' and "Logos," which are Greek words translated into the English "word," you will discover that the two words are used interchangeably.

At the present time in a current religious movement, there is a teaching that "rhema" is the spoken word uttered by men of authority.

According to this teaching the "logos" is the written Word.

But if you check this very carefully, you will find that there were times when people spoke the "logos" and there were times when they spoke the "rehma."

In like manner there were times when they used the word "logos" when referring to Scripture. and there were times when they used "rhema."

In the New Testament, these two words were used interchangeably.

The truth of the matter is that we have a holy word, the "logos" from God, and we put in action constantly the "rhema."

It would be wrong to quibble about those words.

I believe, in fact, that the teaching that differentiates between the prophetic word and the written Word is not born out by careful research of the Scriptures.


  God has given you the written Word, and it is like the packet of seeds which you plant in your heart.

That Word begins to grow and explode in your heart, and after a while what comes out is a real flow of the Word.

God never intended that anything He gives you be dead-ended within your nature.

He gives you the Holy Spirit; and as you come to Him and drink, as the Lord said, "Out of your belly will flow rivers of living water" ( John 7:38 ).

He  never intended that it stop with you.

He never intended that He put a Word in you that stops with you.

God's intention was that when He gives you a word, that word should begin to grow until it possesses you; and after a while, you will be speaking the word of God, too.

You will be a source of that word.

After  you drink of the Holy Spirit, you, too, will become a fountain of living water.


  God has more for His people to move in than they are moving in right now; and the quickest way to move in what He wants is to go back to the Lord and say, "Lord, I want You to fill my vessel."

You may contend that you have been filled, but things have changed since you were filled.


  In most houses there are all sizes of jars.

There are half-pints, pints, quarts, gallons, and hugh five-gallon water bottles.

If you get all those bottles together and fill them, you might question each one, saying, "Little jar, are you full?"

"I'm filled to running over."

"How about you, water bottle, are you full?"

"All five gallons. I'm filled to running over."


  There is a great deal of difference between a half-pint and a five-gallon jug.

The difference is in the capacity.

As you walk on in the Lord, you are like a wineskin that stretches; sometimes you do not realize that it takes a little more to fill you after awhile.

If you have a half-pint, just keep on being full until your capacity is enlarged; and it will be enlarged.


  God's people must keep seeking the Lord and keep being filled with the Lord, coming together again and again to be filled all over again.

They must let the Word of Christ dwell in them richly, and out of that word they can speak to themselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, as they come to Him to be filled again
 ( Colossians 3:16 ).

They must be conditioned to the relationship of spiritual fullness that enables them to speak the word of the Lord effectively.

Speak the Word of God as Oracles of God.

The Word And The Spirit Together

 I recently became aware of a working pastor in Long beach California who is sincerely hungry for more of God's moving on the earth.

But he seems to be looking in wrong places!

There is a very correct balance between the teaching of the Word of God and the moving of the Holy Spirit in a healthy Church environment.

Jesus Christ was known as a "prophet, powerful in Word and deed before God and all the people"
Luke 24:19

Jesus said,"The Words I have spoken to you are Spirit and they are life."
John 6:63

God works through His Word and His Spirit in perfect balance.


Any church that only teaches the Word and any church that only operates in signs and wonders is an "Ishmael," a half son.

 Abraham acted in the flesh in an attempt to fulfill a promise of God for a son and only produced a half son of the promise.

 A son today that conflicts with the true son of the promise, "Isaac" who was the full son of Abraham.

Isaac is the fulfillment of Gods promise to Abraham.

Word only churches conflict with Spirit only churches and vise versa.

This is an obstacle to a healthy New Testament Church.

It is a soulish act of the flesh to only teach the Word and doctrines.

 It is an act of the flesh to attempt to only operate in signs and wonders of the Holy Spirit.

 It is an act of true spirituality to operate in both signs and wonders of the Holy Spirit and the teaching of the Word of God and doctrines together in a delicate balance.

What will it be Church?

 Ishmael, the flesh?

Or Isaac, the promise of God fulfilled?

If the Church heeds this message it will operate in true power and purity, teaching the Word and moving in the Spirit.

Jesus said to the Sadducees, "You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God."
Matthew 22:29

Paul the apostle said:

"Our gospel came to you not simply with words, but also with power, with the Holy Spirit and with deep conviction."
1 Thessalonians 1:5

Paul also said:

"My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit's power."
1 Corinthians 2:4

Paul combined the Scriptures with a demonstration of the power of God in perfect delicate balance!

The two together, the Bible, God's inerrant and infallible Word, the Scriptures, and the supernatural, powerful signs and wonders of the Holy Spirit.

Total Balance.

Jesus said that the Sadducees were ignorant of both of these.

 In most of our modern day churches it has been one or the other and not both together.

 Recently a couple of great men of God passed away who missed this completely in their churches.

 

God took these men home early because I believe the time of imbalance is over.


To only emphasize one aspect of the correct balance, like these men of God did in their churches was very wrong.

God had to remove these influential men from the scene in order to start to correct a great wrong in the Church of today.

It is wrong to emphasize only one side of the equation but it is right to have a balance of both in equality.

Do you want to see God moving in your midst in power and mighty majesty?

 Do you want to see the Holy Spirit rain down in your midst in magnificent revival?


The Scriptures and the Power of Almighty God together will accomplish this.

Has the modern day church been deceived into thinking that it could operate in a lopsided fashion and accomplish anything?

 A true New Testament Church will operate in a balance of the Word and in Power of the Holy Spirit if it wants to impact this our world in this day and age.

Some Christians have been taught for years that their knowledge of the Scriptures was enough, that their emphasis of correct doctrines was enough.

They believed sincerely that it was enough and the only way to conduct "church."

 Anything else was totally irrelevant and unnecessary to them.

 The Power of God moving in signs and wonders was only something that happens on the pages of their Bibles and not really a reality for today.

To think like that is to be imbalanced.

The Word and the Spirit, balance.

The New Testament Church is not complete without signs and wonders!

Jesus said to our early Church founders, "Stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high...You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you."
Luke 24:49; Acts 1:8.

The apostle Paul warned us against "having a form of godliness but denying its power."
2 Tim 3:5

Balance is the basis upon which God will grant spiritual power to His New Testament Church.

The emergent church of today will be a church of balance, a true restoration of a New Testament Church in the Land.

 Not a powerless, boring church but a Church in revival where souls are being saved on a daily basis in Almighty God power of the Holy Spirit and  in the doctrines and teaching of the Word of God!

BALANCE!

I have fought to bring this message to others my entire walk with God.

 Fighting to bring about balance.

I have been asked to go away because of my message at times.

But my prophetic calling in the Lord requires me to bring this message to others in the Body of Christ.

You can plainly see why.

We will see the restoration of the New Testament Church!

 And then, and only then will there be the greatest out pouring of God's Holy Spirit in the land like never before in the Church.

Church are you listening?

Are you beginning to get it?

Do you want to walk in perfect balance?

There is coming a birthing of the promises of God, the Isaac of God.

 The Ishmael church is falling apart with out their leadership that God has now removed.

We will begin to see in the land a restoration of the New Testament Church of balance.

This is the promised Bride of Christ, the Body of Christ represented in the land that will shine brightly before all the eyes of the earth in this our time...

~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-


Are we ready for the revival just around the corner that is soon coming?


 The people that I see God using the most in this revival will be those who have allowed a Biblical foundation to be constructed under them, knowing the Word of God.

 The Spirit of God will have that which He needs to use in you by bringing to your recollection passages of the Scriptures at pertinent moments.

I see people who have learned to be sensitive to the Holy Spirits leading and guidance being used in this upcoming revival.

People who know how to trust in the Holy Spirit to move through their yielded lives.

A people who know of the power of the Word and of the Spirit.

 They move in the knowledge of the Word and of the Spirit.

For the Word of God is living and active.

 Sharper than any two edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
Hebrews 4:12

Those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.


A perfect blend of the knowledge of Gods Word and able to follow the Holy Spirit's leading.

 This is the Christian that God will be using in greater anointing to bring about the coming revival.

We all are blending together in perfect unity.

By this all men will know you are My disciples, if you love one another.

Why?

 To tell others about Jesus Christ and the gospel message. 

The Spirit also bears testimony; He witnesses to Jesus and empowers us to do the same.

The Holy Spirit "will testify about Me."
John 15:26

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.
Acts 1:8

After they prayed, the place they were meeting was shaken.

And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the Word of God boldly.
Acts 4:31

We must not forget that the kingdom of God consists in power, not in words, as Paul reminds us in
 1 Corinthians 4:20:

"For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power."

DO NOT EXCLUDE THE HOLY SPIRIT.

My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit's power, so that your faith might not rest on men's wisdom, but on God's power.
1 Corinthians 2:4-5

Jews demand miraculous signs and Greeks look for wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, but to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.
1 Corinthians 1:22-24

Only in the preaching of the cross of Christ will we find the perfect balance of the Word and the Spirit. 

There are some places that are telling young people to not worry about the Word of God.

In fact they are being told that sometimes the Spirit of God will go outside of the Word of God.

 They seek novelty.

They are being told that people who abide by the Word are "fearful."

An impossibility because the Spirit of God and the Word of God are One.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
John 1:1

The Holy Spirit is the Author of the Bible.

 "No prophecy of scripture (whether found in the Old or New Testament.) is of private interpretation.

For no prophecy ever came by the will of man: but men spake from God, being moved by the Holy Spirit."
 2 Pet. 1:21.

Men did not conjure from their own minds the prophecies.

They were moved, carried, or borne along as the wind carries a sailing vessel, by the Holy Spirit, the breath of God.

The Bible, then, is from the Holy Spirit and not from man and is, therefore, to be revered as God.

  It was the work of the Spirit to reveal the mind of God to the apostles, who both spake and wrote these things.

The written word, the Bible, is authored in this manner by the Holy Spirit.

 The Holy Spirit provided Christ with unlimited power during his personal ministry.

The Holy Spirit said through Isaiah (11:2) that "the Spirit of Jehovah shall rest upon" Jesus.

 In a synagogue in Nazareth, Jesus read from Isaiah 61:1,2 which says, in part, "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he anointed me to preach good tidings to the poor" (Lk. 4:18).

 Jesus thus affirmed that he preached by the power of the Spirit. Peter said that God anointed Jesus "with the Holy Spirit and with power" (Acts 10:38).

 According to Romans 8, the Holy Spirit does three things: a. Leads or guides God's children.

 "For as many as are lead by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God" (v. 14).

Those who are, "after the Spirit, mind the things of the Spirit" (v. 5).

We mind our parents by obeying them and we mind the things of the Spirit by obeying the words of the Spirit, which are found in the Bible.

The Spirit Does not go outside of the Word or beyond the Word.

The Spirit speaks to us through his Word, the New Testament.

 The Holy Spirit once spoke through inspired men. Now he speaks to us in the inspired book, the New Testament.

 We "hear what the Spirit saith to the churches" (Rev. 2:7), by reading his words. The Holy Spirit works through the word, the New Testament. "Blessed is he that readeth" (Rev. 1:3).

 The Spirit and the Word are Inseparable.

Both together bring balance and power.

The Holy Spirit convicts the world (Jn. 16:8-11) concerning sin.

The Holy Spirit exposes, brings to light, or proves to be wrong those who do not believe Christ to be the Son of God.

Through the preaching of the gospel, sin is exposed.

 For example, Peter, through inspiration of the Spirit, exposed the sins of his hearers in Jerusalem (Acts 2).

The Spirit uses the Word to prosecute those in sin.

In every single revival the Spirit of God moved through His Word to convict people of sin.

The power of God moved and people were saved.

 The Spirit works through his word to reason with us.

A Major Conundrum For New York City

 
New samples taken from groundwater near New York's Indian Point nuclear plant show that contamination levels are 80% higher than previous samples, and experts say the leak is "a disaster waiting to happen."

 The Indian Point nuclear power plant is located just 25 miles north of New York City, and it is a crucial source of power for the greater metropolitan region.

Danger In Our Food Supply

 

The researchers, led by immunologists at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, got started on the idea of harnessing a viral decoy knowing that such germs normally manipulate and prune the gut microbiome. 

The community of viruses that bustle in human guts -- called the virome or microvirome -- trigger anti-microbial immune responses that can put the microbial communities on lock down, preventing new microbes from colonizing. 

Such a state of "colonization resistance" in the gut could thwart harmful germs from moving in, particularly when the microbiome is imbalanced and vulnerable after antibiotic treatments, the researchers hypothesized -- and they found they were right.

One of the reasons GMO foods are bad for you is the "glysophate"  kills the microvirome in our guts which severely compromises our immunity defenses.

Government watchdog agencies such as the FDA have done little to protect the populace from companies such as Monsanto from harming the people with deadly products.

Bottom line is profit for corporations over human health.

We Live In A Democracy?

http://www.bbc.com/news/blogs-echochambers-27074746

An anonymous reader writes with the key claim of a story at The Daily Kos:


 In a truly egregious move yesterday, Twitter suspended the account responsible for #WhichHillary, activist @GuerrillaDems. T

witter also removed #WhichHillary from trending status, which is odd, considering the hashtag received more than 450,000 tweets in less than 24 hours. 

Twitter now says the suspension of @GuerillaDems was a mistake. 

Although this may just be a coincidence, it isn't the first time Twitter has exerted political control

Many users think it is a demonstrable conflict of interest, in light of Twitter Executive Chairman Omid Kordestani's Sunday, 2/28 fundraiser with Clinton.

The Daily Kos itself offers at least a perfunctory caution that it's unclear "whether it was intentional removal, or algorithmic coincidence."

Jesus Cleanser Is Powerful Like No Other

Jesus Cleans!

And the Jews' passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the
changers of money sitting: And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and
poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables; And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's
house an house of merchandise. And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up.


(John 2:13~17)

The story of Jesus going to the
temple of Jerusalem and cleansing
it is a famous one and it
makes us realize extremely deep
and important things about spiritual
life.

At the time, there were merchants
who sold oxen, sheep,
and doves at the temple of Jerusalem.
The oxen would urinate
and poop, the sheep would loudly
bellow, the doves would flap
their wings . . . .

The temple was a
big mess. There were many people
at the temple at that time.
Those in charge of the temple,
Sadducees, Pharisees, priests . . . .

There were many people but
none of them could cast these
things out. But Jesus came and
cast them out.

I often feel such things in my
spiritual life. When I have various
problems arising in my heart, I
often try to take care of them
myself through my methods and
ways instead of looking to have
Jesus come to my heart and take
care of these problems, even
though I believe Jesus. 
 
But in
such instances my problems remained
unsolved, and the Lord
took care of them when I looked
and relied on Him.

He cannot coexist with our lustful
thoughts. Since lust and Jesus are
enemies, one or the other must
leave. 
 
Isn't that so? Jesus and hatred
can never be together. Hatred,
fear, evilness; such things
cannot stay together with Jesus.

The temple of Jerusalem was
defiled because it was filled with
the people who sold oxen, sheep,
and doves. Other people may tolerate
this and pass it by, but Jesus
could never tolerate this. 
 
Others
may think, "What can we do? We
have to sell oxen to give offerings,"
but Jesus could never allow
this. Jesus could not simply pass
by as He sees the oxen, sheep,
and doves pooping and urinating
in the temple.

This is not only true with oxen,
sheep, and doves but also with
the darkness inside of you. Darkness
can remain in the heart of a
person without Jesus, but if Jesus
remains in one's heart, the darkness
cannot remain there.

The temple 2000 years ago was a temple,
but our heart is also the temple
in which Jesus dwells. Therefore,
just as the Lord could not
allow oxen, sheep, and doves to
remain in the temple, He cannot
allow people whose hearts have
become temples to have darkness
in their heart. 
 
You may simply be
lustful and enjoy it, but Jesus cannot
allow it. You may allow hatred,
despair, or sorrow but Jesus
can never allow such things.

Therefore, the determination
in your spiritual life to, "I am going
to live properly. I am not going
to steal. I will not do drugs. I
will not drink," cannot cast such
things out.

If you realize
that you are ruined and if Jesus
comes as the Lord into your
heart, Jesus cannot allow darkness,
lust, nor deceit in your
heart and hence, such things cannot
remain. You, without yourself
even knowing it, become
changed and renewed.

The Sins
Automatically Left
When we did not know the
world of spiritual life very well,
we tried to fix ourselves when
we sinned, lived riotously, and
lived promiscuously.

"I should not drink. I should
not smoke. I should not commit
crimes."

The body of a person is the
screen of his heart. When we watch
a movie, we do not watch the film
but what shows up on the screen.

What shows on the film shows on
the screen. This is also true with
man. If you have pain in your heart,
the pain shows in your facial expression,
shows in your stomach
and intestines. When you have joy,
the joy shows in your facial expression
and words.

When a person is
sick, he only tries to have the sickness
healed. When fixing the film,
what shows on the screen will be
automatically fixed. Likewise, if you
first heal the heart, the body will
automatically be healed. But it is
difficult because people do not try
to fix the film but the screen.

When Jesus enters our heart,
Jesus easily casts out darkness,
fear, and sin.

"Thou shalt have no other
gods before me. You shall not
make idols unto yourselves. Thou
shalt not take the Lord God's
name in vain . . . ."
I recited and memorized them
all but I still broke them all. But
after Jesus entered my heart, all
those sins left me without me
even knowing it. Neither did I try
to throw them away nor labor to
not sin, but one by one, they left
me. It was so amazing and wonderful,
and I am so thankful.

If Jesus Is in Our Heart
Spiritual life is not done
through you. You cannot rid your
heart of sadness, you cannot
overcome fear in your heart, and
you cannot rid your heart of pain.
Even though the temple of Jerusalem
was defiled and dirtied it
could not cast out the oxen,
sheep, and doves.

But when Jesus
came, automatically they were
cast out. In this way, if the lord in
your heart changes from yourself
to Jesus, He casts out all the sadness
and despair from your heart.

The woman taken in adultery
was caught and was being dragged
to death. Her heart was filled
with fear, sadness, and pain.
But when she met Jesus, the fear
departed, the sadness departed,
the pain departed, and only
thankfulness remained.

If the loving Lord is in our heart,
He cleanses our heart, purifies our
thoughts, and leads our life to be
beautiful. That is spiritual life.
Spiritual life is not done through
our efforts to become clean.

The story of the temple of Jerusalem
in John chapter 2 is talking
about the temple of our heart today.
It is telling us that if Jesus enters
in, the dirty things of our
heart depart.

Google plans to follow Microsoft in throwing its legal support behind Apple in its increasingly contentious dispute with the federal government around the iPhone connected with the San Bernardino terror attacks, according to sources.

At a congressional hearing on Thursday, Microsoft's legal chief, Brad Smith, said that the company plans to file an amicus brief next week in support of Apple's resistance to helping the FBI hack the phone. Google will deliver its own supporting brief 'soon,' according to sources familiar with the company.

A group of ISIS supporters have threatened to take down Facebook and Twitter, as well as their leaders. In a 25-minute propaganda video released by a group calling itself "the sons of the Caliphate army," photographs of both technology leaders are riddled with bullets.

 The video was first spotted by Vocativ. The threats are being made over the two companies' efforts to seek out and remove terrorist-related content on their respective platforms.

 The group is quoted as saying, "If you close one account, we will take 10 in return and soon your names will be erased after we delete your sites, Allah willing, and will know that we say is true."

How the male body produces sperm has long been hidden inside its genitalia. 

Trying to recreate the process in a lab for humans and other mammals has led to many failures - sperm development appeared to be dependent on unique conditions in the testes.

 But a new technique may finally be bringing that process into the open. 

A team of Chinese researchers reports turning a dish of a certain type of mouse stem cell into spermlike cells, which were then used to fertilize eggs and produce healthy mouse pups. 

The approach could help researchers study mammalian sperm development more directly, and it could spur efforts to develop treatments for male infertility in people.

 

Uggh!

In The Beginning God...


The conventional wisdom has been among scientists is that a myriad of Earth-like planets exist in the universe, some of which have to be the abode of life, even intelligent life.

However, Astrophysicist Erik Zackrisson from Uppsala University in Sweden has run a computer simulation of the universe, incorporating what we know about exoplanets thanks to the Kepler Space Telescope, the laws of physics, and the state of the early universe. 

The computer simulation came up with exactly one Earth, which is to say the one we live on. 

Every other planet in the universe does not have the conditions necessary to sustain life.

 Indeed, strictly speaking, Earth itself should not exist, according to the computer model, according to the story in Discover Magazine.

Christvertising?


Just when I think that I have seen it all.


I once came across a man with a true authentic prophetic calling in Jesus Christ.

Instead of ministering to the Body of Christ like he was called to do, he opened a business on the east coast of America giving/selling people prophetic words for a $et fee.

 Much the same as a clairvoyant psychic does.

 He could not understand why I thought it was so wrong.

And now I come across this fellow...

 http://www.funnyordie.com/videos/12e6ec5408/how-does-christvertising-work-from-thepool?_cc=__d___&_ccid=m83cv2.nr4dq7

What's up with these guys?

Actually this one is just a spoof, mocking Christians.

I can't blame the world for mocking some of us for our marketing 'all things spiritual.'

It truly defies my sense of reason to think that any human being who freely obtains revelation from Almighty God has the insensitivity to think that they can then 'package' that revelation and then market it to others.

Think about it.

 Earthly wisdom comes from below.

 Earthly wisdom is not heavenly wisdom that comes from above.

 Biblical wisdom is freely given to humankind by God through his servants.


It is not earthly wisdom that helps us spiritually, it is heavenly wisdom that helps us.

Man never originates heavenly wisdom.

Man gets heavenly wisdom from the Bible, "God's Word."

Man gets heavenly wisdom by revelation from God.

God gives all of this to us freely.


Jesus Christ's instructions to all of His followers were:

Matthew 10:8 
Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

 Christ had it wrong, right?

Obviously by today's standards what He meant to say was:

 "Freely ye have received, now repackage what you received freely from Me and Profit from it, making gain in business activity for the benefit of yourselves and the business you make from it. Do anything you can to produce $$$.

No?

 Well then...

Whole ministries are built from the marketing of things freely given by God to humankind.

Marketing machines are employed to merchandise that which has been freely God given.

And no one seems to see the truth.

No one looks at the reality of 'freely' meaning freely.

One could argue that the things sold come from the sellers of them.

 And that those sellers have the right to sell their things.

But that would then mean that it is only human earthly wisdom being sold and not the freely given heavenly wisdom from above.

And the conclusion could be made that therefore nothing being sold is the freely given heavenly wisdom that we are told to "Freely give."

GIVE?

What!

Give out freely what we get freely...

See.

We are being caught up in one of the biggest disobedience of what we have been instructed to do by Jesus Himself.


Would Jesus upturn their merchants tables today?

You bet He would!

All of the materialistic arguments to justify the sale of anything of heaven will not stand up to the laser beam of
Matthew 10:8
.

You want God's anointing?

You want to be smeared with the oil of His presence?

 You want God to manifest His presence in your ministry to others?

Then clean up your act and stop selling that which comes by revelation of the Holy Spirit to you.

Stop grieving the Holy Spirit!!!

Ephesians 4:30
And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God...

Just because others sell what they get freely from God, does not excuse you, O servant of God, from selling what you get freely from God.

 I received an email from a Christian organization today.


What you read above is the outline of the email with a few things changed by me to make a point,

I inserted the day of Pentecost instead of their Prophetic conference and I changed the names of their important star people who will be there.
 
Wonder if there ever would have been a Pentecost if it was trapped behind a paywall?
 
Would the wind have blown?
 
Would there have been tongues of fire?
 
Would everyone have heard their own language being spoken?
 
Would Peter's friends and family been able to pay up to gain access to the event?

2 Timothy 3New International Version (NIV)

But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.

They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over gullible women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires, always learning but never able to come to a knowledge of the truth. Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so also these teachers oppose the truth. They are men of depraved minds, who, as far as the faith is concerned, are rejected. But they will not get very far because, as in the case of those men, their folly will be clear to everyone.

A Final Charge to Timothy

10 You, however, know all about my teaching, my way of life, my purpose, faith, patience, love, endurance, 11 persecutions, sufferings—what kinds of things happened to me in Antioch, Iconium and Lystra, the persecutions I endured. 
 
Yet the Lord rescued me from all of them. 12 In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, 13 while evildoers and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. 
 
14 But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, 15 and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 
 
16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
 
 For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, 
2 Timothy 4:3
